Because Sometimes You Just Need a Really Good Sandwich

Just a guess here but…chances are there’s a sandwich that is on your ‘last meal’ list.

I was reunited with mine today.

Monty’s Submarines. Home to some nice folks and also home to some of the most delicious sandwiches you’ll ever find. People of Springfield, you have it good. I miss this place.

Growing up in Chatham, the Montvale store was a staple. Visited the Sangamon Ave. store this afternoon – along with a colleague who had never been there before. I think they may have another returning customer after today’s visit.

There’s just something about the seasoning and the dressing they put on those things…combine that with the bread and you have quite a treat. Oh, the bread. The sweet white is out of this world.

My sister and I made a stop at Monty’s when she was in town for Christmas. Realized we were driving by the Montvale store on the way home from sledding that day and (safely, of course) immediately turned off the road to get lunch. It’s just that good. You can’t pass up the chance to enjoy a Gobbler when you’re back in town!

Anyway it’s just a sandwich but it makes me happy every time I get to enjoy one. Hooray for food.

(Ok it’s audience participation time, folks…let’s hear from you!)

At least I now have a backup plan. And Springfield’s a little closer…
